Get Help From Tech­nol­ogy

Bet­ter To­gether

Good Housekeeping (Philippines) - - GH January-february 2016 -


store mem­o­ries with your man us­ing this app, which lets you cre­ate a photo timeline of mo­ments and events, send pri­vate mes­sages, and keep track of your dates with a shared cal­en­dar. You can also use the wish­list fea­ture to make a couple’s to-do list. (The app also of­fers rec­om­men­da­tions— like the lat­est speakeasy bar to check out or new­est restau­rant to dine in.) Feel­ing ex­pres­sive? Sur­prise your hubby with a love let­ter he can only read on the date of your choos­ing.


stay con­nected with this pop­u­lar app, which you can use to take pho­tos and videos of your daily ac­tiv­i­ties and share with your part­ner. Snap when you wake up, while walk­ing your dog, or post­work­out. Just add a cap­tion, a fil­ter, and maybe even some emoti­cons. The catch: Snaps are only avail­able on­line for a lim­ited time—un­less the viewer takes a screen­shot of what you’ve up­loaded. Bonus: when users are both on­line, they can share a live video call.


bounce back from a lovers’ quar­rel with the help of tech­nol­ogy. This app pro­vides you and your part­ner with an in­di­vid­u­al­ized re­port about your feel­ings (“Ir­ri­tated!” “Hurt!”) and the re­pair ideas you should take, guided by the sooth­ing voice of mar­i­tal ther­a­pist Mark Mc­go­nigle. It’s cou­ples’ ther­apy at your fin­ger­tips. Since it’s based on solid re­search on re­la­tion­ships, Fix a Fight is a se­ri­ous tool that can help cou­ples who are open and will­ing.


re­live the joy of making old-school mix­tapes for your spe­cial some­one. Cre­ate a playlist us­ing songs from your itunes, Rdio, or Groove­shark ac­count and send it to your lover for his en­joy­ment. (He has to have Mixkit on his phone, too.) Up the kilig fac­tor by adding cheesy love songs from when you were younger, or ro­man­tic tracks that played dur­ing your wed­ding. Just like old-fash­ioned mix­tapes, how­ever, the playlist can only be up to 90 min­utes long.


al­ways fight­ing about un­done chores? This app can de­crease do­mes­tic fric­tion by en­sur­ing both of you know who’s in charge of what. Cre­ate a to-do list that syncs with your part­ner’s gad­get. You can also in­put im­por­tant dates to keep you both up­dated on your sched­ules. But it’s not all about the dirty work. You can also start on your shared bucket list fea­tur­ing things you’d like to do to­gether.
